Re: Packages being worked on by the Repo Team

Liquorix 4.17-4, based on the 4.17.6 kernel. Krita 4.1.1 for MX 17 only. Neofetch 5.0 Edit: First Krita builds failed because one of the files now call out for an include that's only in Qt >= 5.9, but looking at what the code did showed that it only tested for incompatible versions of Windows, so I ...

Re: newbie help with software install

Welcome to the forum. Can you point us where you got this file from? Thanks Probably directly from ESET. A workaround to a script not running automatically is to first check it has the executable bit set: (right-click--Properties--Permissions). If that's good, then right-click in the folder where t...

Re: Update Request: NixNote 2.0.2

Thanks for your answer. Sorry, I'm quite new to this. I was under the impression that installation of packages from stretch-backports can lead to system instability and should only be done for temporary testing. If this is not the case, then I'll get it from there. I would guess that around 99.9% o...

Re: How to silent boot(solved)

2) During boot, is there a key to switch to text mode? It's been a long time since I used plymouth, but if I recall correctly I think you can press the Esc key to switch to text mode, or in text mode press it to go back to the graphical boot.
